Released a minor update to Bitcoin Core 0.20.1

Saturday, August 1, was released version of the Bitcoin Core 0.20.1, which contains a small number of changes and improvements.

The most significant changes relate to peers that send invalid blocks. With Bitcoin Core 0.20.1 these users are not locked and marked as “not recommended nodes”. This means that the network is less likely to interact with them.

Removing such labels will not automatically stop after 24 hours (or parameter -bantime), and removed “depending on the traffic from other peers”, but is not saved after restarting the node.

Bitcoin Core version 0.20.0 was submitted in early July. The main change in this release was the complete removal of disputed BIP70 (option –enable-bip70 remains, but it will give error during configuration), as well as stopping the use of OpenSSL.
